PANORAMA EPHEMERA (2004, 89:35 min., color and black and white) is a collage of sequences drawn from a wide variety of ephemeral (industrial, advertising, educational and amateur) films, touring the conflicted landscapes of twentieth-century America. The films' often-skewed visions construct an American history filled with horror and hope, unreeling in familiar and unexpected ways. PANORAMA EPHEMERA focuses on familiar and mythical activities and images in America (1626-1978). Many creatures...

This is a typical sex exploitation film from the early 1930s - complete with wild parties, sex out of wedlock, lesbianism, etc. A chorus girl's exposure to the "casting couch" also exposes her to syphilis. Exploitation filmmakers hoped to capitalize on the taboo subjects of venereal disease, sex before marriage, lesbianism, etc. while skirting the Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 which forbade a film from containing such content. Films like this would tour the United States for...

1. As an unsuspecting wanderer between Maikammer and Hambach / Germany makes history. 2. Reassurance 3. Aborigines 4. Moons Lutz Mommartz' films focus attention on the mostly ignored confidante: The doves in the puddle, an ant swarm as a parable of human fuss, the course of the moon, flitting like a dirty spotlight through the night. Imperceptibly the only seemingly aimless camera succeeds to respond formally adequately to the brutal everyday life. In "The italien Hunt" the camera...

With Renate Meves and Gerd Hübinger. A woman looks during lovemaking to the viewer. "Way to the neighbor" is a ten-minute opus that Lutz Mommartz commented as follows: "A women communicates with the audience." More, in fact, does not happen. The devoted rapture in the face of the actor lets the viewer imagine that this is not a compulsory exercise, but a pleasurable freestyle happening. Lutz Mommartz is the purist among German filmmakers. His scenes focus on the basic...
